This Is as Close as You're Likely to Get to Playing Grand Theft Auto V on Your Vita

Give him the chop

You may recall a tiny little game from last year called Grand Theft Auto V. It was a pretty low key affair, only managing to make a measly $1 billion in three days, so we really can't blame you if it passed you by. Jokes aside, the perceptive among you will remember that the boisterous behemoth shipped with a free

May the best man win

With Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends out now in North America and almost here in Europe, we have to ask: which faction will you be siding with?

This Fancy Final Fantasy XIV PS4 Really Is a Limited Edition

One of a kind

Despite the recent release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the PlayStation 4 is starting to slump in Japan.

Fortunately, developer Sucker...

Make no mistake, there’s a solid action RPG hidden beneath this title’s...

This LittleBigPlanet Themed DLC for Tearaway Probably Isn't an April Fools Prank

A safe bet

While it may be one of the funniest times of the year, April Fools' Day can also be a bit of a nightmare on our end, as a lack of scrutiny can lead to a reporter accidentally posting a prank as real news. What's more, developers and publishers are incredibly reluctant to make any proper announcements, lest they not be taken seriously...
